The Q&A Archives: Gardenia Bonsai

Question: I was given a gardenia bonsai for xmas and would like some tips to keep it alive and kicking and of course beautiful.

Answer: Pamela,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you. Provide it as much light as you can although direct sun is not required all day. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet as this encourages root rots. When it warms up a bit move it outdoors to a very bright shady spot and begin fertilizing monthly with a soluble product such as Miracid according to label instructions.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
